Jumping on a bike and exploring the amazing island of Lanzarote is an absolute pleasure for keen cyclists who love to discover the exciting terrain of this volcanic island.

The regional government has done a lot to promote cycling here by setting up the Plan de Rutas Cicloturísticas (a plan of cycle tourism routes), which are a series of defined routes and trails for enthusiastic cyclists to enjoy their sport in fantastic surroundings.

Cycling is a popular activity in Lanzarote. The demanding landscape and consistent year-round climate provide perfect practice and training conditions for amateurs and professionals alike. Every year the island hosts the Lanzarote Ironman, an international triathlon competition that attracts many athletes who like to train on the challenging hills.

There are several companies offering guided cycling excursions and cycle hire, supplying you also with a special map and specific information, most of which can be found in Arrecife, Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen. Your hotel reception will be happy to help you further.

If you feel energetic and you want to do something for your fitness, get the ‘Lanzarote feel’ on a bike!
